Artwork Description

This was created for Epilogue's "Finally free" monthly contest. Because who wants to be stuck on the ground with so much weight on ones feet?

He's great! But would those holy wings hold him up? Hee hee. I love the wings though, they remind me of lace.

Wow! Thanks for the great comment, Anouk! Ill try and use the 'pop out' effect in my future pieces... And about the wings... I was going to do some big clonker wings... but then I got really frustrated when I was trying out about 3458976 different wings and they all looked horible... so off I went on a frustrated artists whim.. went straight to the original and just started doing one of my art nouveau doodles without any planning... But I rather like the end result... yes, yes I do=) Thanks again for the great comment!

again i love the background - i know its just color but it creates something magical, something i cant name with a great aura around the drawing itself. great rendering on the elephant, the really dark shadings as under the ears or mouth really make it 'pop out', id love for you to use that more and i love the wings ; wouldnt expect something elegant like that in combination with something as unelegant as an elephant.
